"Summer of Rockets" looks suitably mysterious!ReplyDelete
And such a lovely pairing of Keeley and Toby!Delete
The two leading actors of "Summer of Rockets" Keeley and Toby, look very classy!ReplyDelete
The plot sounds quite interesting. However,I must admit that the cold war, testing of the bomb, MI5, russian-jewish immigrants - are not attractive enough for me to want to watch this series.
Did you know that Toby Smith is Maggy Smith's son and that Keeley Hawes is Matthew MacFadyen's wife?Delete
I've never liked the cold war era either, Regan and Gorby were the first presidents I remember in my life.
I didn't know that, but then the name is not Smith but Stephens (probably his father's name).ReplyDelete
Well, good for you to be young and remember only Regan and Gorbachov as first presidents of your life.
Yes, slip of tongue, because there really is Toby Smith as well, and Jones too :) Stephens got his daddy's name, and beauty probably :)))Delete
Short little preview of Summer of Rockets. I do still think it's one Jason will be sure to watch.ReplyDelete
You can enjoy Toby!Delete
